    If I understand correctly, the Evo uses the same battery as the Hero, which uses the same battery as the Touch Pro 2. I have one of these for my Hero, and I figured some of you will be needing one soon >.>

    It won't make your battery last longer, per se, but it doesn't drain nearly as fast under intense usage. Its kind of hard to explain, but basically you get more use out of the battery during a given time, while standby time stays mostly the same. I definitely recommend getting one though, its worth the whopping $10 you pay.

    If anyone is interested, they can be found here (for now, anyways):

    Did I mention its the same size as the stock battery?

    I picked up one for my TP2 when these hit Ebay and you are 100% dead on with your description. I'm pretty convinced it's truly not 2000mAh, as performance compared to the OEM is quite similar under load. But, for $10, this is great backup battery option for Evo users.

    I wonder how a battery with more juice can last the same time with something that has less. I would think that it does have a bigger capacity but doesn't hold it's charge that well. I would think of it as a bigger gas tank but it has a small hole at the bottom.

    I guess its like having a bigger processor in your computer--you get more done when you use it, but its going to use up a ton of power whether its sitting or sprinting, if you will.

    Anyway, If I don't use my phone much, the stock battery has more juice at the end of the day. If I use it a lot, stock is dead, Andida is at like 30% or something ridiculous.

    Another thing to note is that the battery will drop rapidly around 20-30%, but in my experience it will hang at 7 or 8% for a LOOOONG time

    Haha, I figured 1500 wouldn't stand a chance, but that's sweet if they're already going to upgrade it... where did you hear about that? The main thread is way too big for me to keep up with anymore >.>

    The main thing I'm worried about is the dimensions. Would a stock Hero battery work on an EVO, or this one?

    No one seems to be able to confirm that.

    I want to buy an additional battery before I get the EVO but I need to know with near absolute certainty that it will fit on the device first.

    I am waiting to find out if Seidio will be releasing an extended-life battery for the Evo. I have one for my BB Bold and it's absolutely incredible.

    That "hole" would be voltage and they all run at 3.7v so if all the stats are TRUE a higher mAh battery will have longer life as it would have more watt hours.

    If I remember correctly, someone about 40+ pages back, called HTC to ask about the battery and the lady he talked to said the Hero battery definitely would not work. But then another poster said by looking at the FCC paperwork, he could tell that the HERO battery would work. So there goes your "near absolute certainty" requirement.

    Maybe you could find one of the advocates in a Sprint store that has an EVO and ask them to pull the battery and compare the EVO battery with one from a Hero.

    Good luck,

    Confirmation would be nice. I will probably order a Seidio extended battery so I can have it when I get my phone.

    Yeah so there's no way to tell for sure if that battery will fit the EVO?

    Only way I could see would be asking a Sprint advocate.

    Woot. After using the HTC Incredible with the stock battery I really want to pick up a bigger battery for the Evo. I have a feeling it's going to need it.

    i'm not seeing a slim extended battery on your site, unless it's just not on there yet. all i see is 1750mAH and 3500mAH batteries that add 3-4mm to the device and comes with a replacement door due to the size increase from the batteries

    The 1750's fit with the stock door for the Incredible.

    yup, on their site it says "More capacity in the same form factor" here (for Incredible) Seidio - Your Single Source for Premium Smartphone Accessories

    for either of the links that i posted for the Evo, though, it does not say that. it says "Adds only 3-4mm to your device". maybe they misprinted on the site. not sure. that's why i'm mentioning it, though. some clarification from Seidio would be nice.

    I have been using this battery (ebay one) for awhile and it is exactly the same as the stock battery. Still a great backup though for 10$

    Let's clear up a common mAh issue in the industry.

    In all technical terms 2000mAh always will last longer then a 1500mAh. It's a unit of electrons used over time. The problem is that the industry is squewed on how to measure this. It's quite easy for a company to claim 2500mAH even, but have no more real world battery life then a 1300mAH. That's why you really should stick to OEM batteries OR very well known sources and not eBAy.

    These e-bay/Chinese el-cheapo batteries won't give you more usage most of the time and are cheaply made so they could be a hazard. If you just want a back-up then they might be perfect for you. I'm thinking of getting one just for that, but for day-to day use I'll stick with OEM and if the OEM starts to show age after a year I'll replace it with an OEM

    does anyone know where we can find an OEM extended battery that is the same size? are seidio batteries OEM? and yes, the Evo will fit the same battery as the HTC Hero, CDMA Variant of Pro2, and HTC Snap (via Sprint store).

    edit: it appears that some seidio batteries are OEM. the ones that are state it so i guess all we can do is hope HTC makes a slim extended battery =/
